No thank you. Next, please.
(16.4.2018) Ten Democratic and Independent senators raised procedural or legal concerns while supporting military intervention on substance. Among them are rising stars in the so-called Democratic “resistance” to Trump—Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.)—both of whom aired concerns about the lack of authorization and legal rationale after the bombings had already taken place.
SAN FRANCISCO — With the growing recognition that prosecutors hold the keys to a fairer criminal justice system, the term “progressive prosecutor” has almost become trendy. This is how Senator Kamala Harris of California, a likely presidential candidate and a former prosecutor, describes herself.
But she’s not.
Every politician — every person — is a product of their own time and place. In the coming months, it looks quite possible that Kamala Harris might win Obama’s endorsement of her bid for president.
If she does, the comparisons between the two are likely to reignite. As with May and Kramp-Karrenbauer, those watching would do better to pay attention to the political landscape Harris is working within now, rather than any nostalgic connotations.
„I’m excited, you know why I’m excited, because the Democratic party we’ve been in the wilderness for the last few years and after the 2018 election, people are coming from all corners of the universe to say they want to toss their hat into the ring, so this is a good time to be a Democrat,“ the veteran Dem said.
